Points out that Afro-American music retains elements of West African musical style despite the experience of slavery, during which every effort was made to strip Africans of their culture and systems of communication. Compares the tonality of a typical blues-based melody to the tonality of a melody played on the mbira, the African thumb piano, and shows the retained musical practice of using call response patterns.
